[Xen-devel] xen test results on Unisys ES7000 using changeset 14552

Host:  Unisys ES7000/one, x86_64, 16 physical processors, 64 GB RAM


xen-unstable changeset 14552 booted with dom0_mem=512M


ISSUES: boot of 32-bit SLES10 DomVTs hang.  Serial console, qemu log, and xend.log provide no indication why; the 32-bit SLES10 DomVTs boot when I back up to changeset 14201 (which I ran successfully 2 weeks ago); the problem was introduced somewhere between changesets 14201 and 14462 (which I ran last week).  Suspect changesets 14391 and 14392.


Testing includes running xm-test and also attempting to boot and run programs in the following domUs and domVTs (running domains #s 3 through 8 simultaneously):


1.       32-processor 64-bit SLES10 DomU with 62GB memory – ran cloops, bonnie, and kernbench

2.       32-processor 64-bit SLES10 DomVT with 62GB memory

3.       4-processor 64-bit SLES10 DomU with 16GB memory  - ran kernbench

4.       4-procesor 32-bit SLES10 DomVT with 2GB memory – doesn’t boot

5.       4-processor 32-bit PAE SLES10 DomVT with 16GB memory – doesn’t boot

6.       4-processor 64-bit SLES10 DomVT with 16GB memory – ran kernbench

7.       1-processor Windows XP DomVT with 4GB memory – ran 100% cpu intensive program

8.       1-processor Windows 2003 Server DomVT with 4GB memory – ran 100% cpu intensive program



Domains #4 and #5 do not boot. They hang on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server screen before login prompt appears.

Opened bug # 940.

Rest of tests successful.


Ran xm-test (non-HVM) on dom0 with the following results:
